weener coop: the players

i probably should have posted this first, but here are the members of the weener coop & other creatures of interest.
the character “hal” is the invisible man. he does have speaking parts in the comic. whenever you see a speech bubble attached to no one…that’s hal!

i do hope i one day (soon) return to this comic….

weener coop page nine

here is the last finished page of weener coop
yes, i left it in a cliffhanger….
one of these days i am sure to finish.

weener coop page six

so i was apparently working through some cooperative living angst here…this was written while being active in a cooperative house of over 30 people. i moved in there when i had two kids. my third child was actually born there.

i have some love/hate feelings i’m still working through.

what’s real fun is listening to predominantly white people (mostly university students)–especially men–debate about diversity.

weener coop page four

my stars & ribbons–there is a lot of cursing in this comic.

this page might mark my moving on from grievances with one particular housemate to grievances with that entire culture of some intentional communities.

keep in mind, i was nearly kicked out of this coop for my attitude & lack of censoring.
i’m not sure i learned my lesson.

weener coop page three

so i lived in this coop in madison, & there was a chick there who i swear was stalking me. every time i left the room, she would take my chair…. it was kinda funny until one time i left the room & she took my ex-husband.

weener coop page two

so it’s a co-op of halloween figures…& yes, i am the zombie voodoo thing. my ex-husband is the mummified corpse (representative of his contribution to our family.)
based on a true story, of course.

weener coop page one

some of you may know i spent 4 years living in a cooperative house. this comic is based on that experience.
yes…i am a little jaded by the experience…yet i still believe intentional community is a good thing…just a tricky thing.

i personally find this strip hilarious…but i am sure it is totally offensive to some….

confusion perfume…the book

there were like four more pages of confusion perfume…however, the wonderful tara caribou is planning to publish my comic with a couple other of my comics in a book due out later this year….
what?!?
yes, it’s true.
while there is no news on my short story collection, tangled together, which was supposed to come out in 2019…now, out of the blue, i have a different book coming out in my medium of choice: comics!!!!
so fucking exciting.
by the way, should there be a publisher who wants to tackle the short story collection, i think i can safely assume my other publisher has jumped ship.

anyhoo. the last four pages were a change of pace for confusion perfume, less levity…more dark & scribbly. a short story about 9-11-01 that i turned into a comic using berenice beaumont (my character in confusion perfume in case you are just tuning in.)
and i decided not to post them to give y’all a little mystery. plus! tara has requested i write little ditties like i like to do, explaining/rationalizing/analyzing my work. so i am totally having a blast doing that.
also…maybe brand new never seen before pages????

so what now?
well, today, we have quixotic postcards i made years ago at a ‘zine fest when the printer did not have my order of postcards ready & i had to make some up on the fly.

tomorrow?
(or the next day if tomorrow is too hectic)
pages of my comic in progress: weener coop
& by in progress, i mean, i really do plan on getting back to it one day because i think it is totally fucking awesome.

not always so graphic…

knowledge is power….

in my new embracing of my comic life…i am starting to take my odd or quirky thought & turn it into a comic. because, fuck it, i think i’m funny.

here is today’s….
